bleu Majorelle

The first time I read about Jardin Majorelle (Majorelle Garden), I was enthralled.  The incredible variety of lush vegetation, including cactus, yucas, water lilies, jasmine, bougainvilleas and others, juxtaposed with the bold cobalt blue architecture to form a breathtaking landscape from a different world.

Located in Marrakech, Morroco, this garden was designed by French artist Jacques Majorelle (1886 - 1962) and has been thought to be his creative masterpiece, more than his paintings were.  In fact, the special shade of cobalt blue used so extensively in the garden was named after him, bleu Majorelle.


Indeed, Jardin Majorelle was in my mind when I came across these lapis lazurites with their outrageous cobalt blue with dashes of brass gold pyrite flecks...I knew I had to get them!
